Description:

This is a konqueror service menu item to attach MULTIPLE files to evolution emails. The only examples I've seen for attaching files to Evolution have only allowed for a single file attachment. This service menu allows for multiple attachments. The script to do this is written in python, so you'll need python to run this. Installation instructions are in the readme.

The .desktop file comes from http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=13296. The python script is original.

Enjoy

I'm sorry that you feel this way. This could have been cleaned up a lot less publically by a quick email.

Neway, the only thing I used from your release was the .desktop file. The commandline mailto syntax for evolution has been around for a long time, and I have been using it for the purpose of service menus for a while now - but only for single files. When I saw you release your version, I thought that you might have worked out how to attach multiple files. However, when I downloaded it, and found it only did single files, I wondered how other programs did it - ie the plugins for digikam. So I dug around in the source, and found the correct syntax. The python script is all original. We all build on the shoulders of others. Your stuff was released under the GPL.

Notwithstanding the above, I'll acknowledge stuff that I've used from your release.

If you want to get technical, all those translations from that .desktop came from people who sent them in for http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=11234 where they are all acknowledged.

When I'm home, and can test your flummy, I'll delete this item.

Agreed. Given that you've implemented this in your stuff anyway, I might just remove this item. It's unnecessary now, and the issues re acknowledgment are a bit silly (in my view).

Thanks for doing this. I wasn't aware of evolution's syntax for attaching multiple files. I'm going to add this functionality to attach-to-email servicemenu (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=11234), now that I know how.

Also, your readme explains that it can't handle files with spaces in the filename, but it works for me!

Oops, didn't notice in your changelog that it is supposed to handle whitespace now. Disregard previous comment.
